Grindhouse Nostalgia : Memory, Home Video and Exploitation Film Fandom, Paperback / softback Book

Grindhouse Nostalgia : Memory, Home Video and Exploitation Film Fandom Paperback / softback


Too often dismissed as 'trash cinema', exploitation films have nevertheless become sincerely appreciated cult objects on home video.

In this new study, David Church explores how the history of drive-in theatres and urban grind houses has descended to home video formats.

Focusing on both the re-release of archival exploitation films on DVD and the recent cycle of 'retrosploitation' films like Grindhouse, Machete, Viva, and Black Dynamite, Church examines how nostalgia shapes the aesthetics and politics of exploitation films and the fan cultures devoted to them.
